[image]Fires in the Southeastern United States - NASA image courtesy the Goddard Space Flight Center
Dozens of fires were burning in the Southeast on March 15, 2006, when the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite passed over the region. Places where the sensor detected actively burning fires are marked in red. According to reports from the National Interagency Fire Center from March 16, numerous types of fires were burning in the Southeast, including prescribed fires (planned fires that land managers use to manage natural resources), lightning-caused f...

Scores of fires – and their smoke – are clearly visible in this image of the Southeastern United States. It has been another active fire season in the U.S. So far this year (from 01/01/05 to 10/14/05), there have been close to 55,000 events that have impacted over 3.3 million hectares (8.2 million acres); the ten year averages over the same time period are 70,000 fires that burned 1.8 million hectares (4.5 million acres)...

As people convert natural landscapes to human-tailored ones, we change the cycling of water and carbon dramatically. Across the United States, water supplies are under increasing pressure as populations grow. Forests and soils that were once a sink for atmospheric carbon can become sources as the natural landscapes are disturbed.Among the human-tailored landscapes that influence carbon and water cycles in America are lawns...

Winter’s first snow fell over the MidAtlantic states on December 19, 2004, covering the region with a dusting of white. Curiously, the Appalachian Mountains remain mostly bare, but snow covers the Midwestern states to the west. This true-color image was taken by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Terra satellite on December 20, 2004. Though the clouds had cleared, winter’s grip tightened over the Eastern United States...

This view shows considerable amounts of colored organic matter and suspended sediment in the water (note the dark reddish patches at the mouths of the Cape Fear River and Winyah Bay). The apparent lighter color of the ocean from the Carolinas northward is caused by atmospheric aerosols which scatter incoming solar radiation back into space.For more information about sediment runoff from Hurricane Floyd...

[image]Pollution over the Great Lakes and United States East Coast - Jacques Descloitres, MODIS Land Rapid Response Team, NASA/GSFC
Air quality across the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States is less than ideal in late June 2002. Much of the pollution is likely smoke from forest fires in the West and fires in Canada’s prairie provinces to the north. Since the dominant weather patterns across the country move air from west to east, it is not uncommon for air quality along the East Coast to be affected by fires out West.This series of images from the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) ...
